Zakynthos Navagio Or Shipwreck beach


Zakynthos Shipwreck or Navagio Bay: The beach of Navagio or Shipwreck cove is the most famous beach of Zakynthos lying on the western side of the Ionian island, close to Anafotiria village. The Shipwreck is one of the most photographed landscapes in Greece. It is considered as one of the best beaches in Greece. It was initially called Agios Georgios but owes its new name to the shipwreck of a boat that transported illegal cigarettes, in 1983. The ship was washed ashore.

With the years passing, the sand completely surrounded the ship which looks now as it emerges from it. The vestiges of the ship can be seen in the middle of the large white sandy beach which has amazing turquoise and crystalline waters. Huge vertical cliffs of white rocks are surrounding the sand creating a unique and enchanting image. To reach this paradise, one has to take a little boat from the small port of Porto Vromi. These taxi boats are leaving every hour and the trip is about 30 minutes.

Navagio beach - also often known as Smugglers cove. - is probably the most visited sights on Zante and one of the most photographed beaches. This beach is only accessible from the water. It can also be viewed from small platform which looks down over the sea. y the Greek Navy in bad weather it was wrecked and washed up on to the beach. White pebbles and a small stretch of sand comprise this beach which is surrounded by crystal clear turquoise waters. For the average tourist a visit to the Shipwreck is a definite must see. The beach can be reached through a wide offer of boat trips for examle from Zakynthos town of Aghios Nicolaos.

Absolutely LOVED our time in Zakynthos, in particular visiting Navagio. If you’re wondering if you can just do the boat trip and skip the view from the top…. The short answer is NO! You will thank me for it when you see it for yourself.
